Minnie Mouse Digital Invites

When you don't have the time to create handmade invites (or money) creating your own digital invites can be a great solution. Here are a few Minnie Mouse invites I have created in the past! There are some great websites to download your own fonts. I found the 

Waltograph

 font for free!! You can also find some backgrounds and graphics. Some are free and some you may have to purchase but it's worth it when you think of how much time and money you would normally spend.

Tips to start you off designing your own invite

  • First you want to select the appropriate size of your document (I recommend a 5 x 7 or 4 x 6)
  • Pick a back round that compliments your theme... colors, shapes, patterns, graphic.
  • Look for graphics or create your own.
  • Search and pick a font that you like best.
  • Consider adding in a picture.. make sure it's a good one!

Birthday Budget Challenge!!!

Early Birthday planning as usual... this one is for my most recent child's FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!!! I am so excited to have another child to plan parties for.. I have been drumming my head about the theme for some time.... and bam it hit me ELMO!! The only character to make her burst out giggling just from a balloon.

So with the exciting events from this summer.. wedding, parties...ect and the upcoming vacations to Arizona in November and Walt Disney World in January, I need to set a budget and find some alternate methods of creating a stylish party.  

The Budget: $100.00!!!!! Wow this might be tough!

Of course, turning to my trusty Pinterest, I was able to search for some budget friendly was of incorporating some decoration into the plans. I shall take these into consideration.....
